HOME BUSINESS SOUND OFF
October 10, 1999
In regard to a brief article by Kendrick Blackwood in the Oct. 5 Journal-World about the consultant firm critical of the home business plan being considered by Douglas County: The vice president of the firm said he thought that these plans were “out there” and that they were “pushing the envelope,” but no clarification was made as to whether they’re too lax or too strict. I think it would really be helpful to the public to have some understanding of what Duncan Associates is talking about. Kirk Bishop, vice president of Duncan Associates, said the county’s proposed regulations were less strict than other regulations he had seen. He was not necessarily being critical. He said the regulations being considered by the county would allow industrial-type activities in areas zoned agricultural. He suggested that the commissioners consider that before passing its new rules.

NED KEHDE
October 10, 1999
The remaking of Melvern Lake began eight years ago as a joint effort of the Corps of Engineers, the Kansas Walleye Association and Leonard Jirak of Wildlife and Parks. According to KWA’s Dan Norris, walleye fishing at Melvern hit a pathetic low in 1990, when a two-day tournament was won by an angler who caught just two walleye. That sorry event became the catalyst for the reservoir’s revamping.
NORRIS STANDS OUT
October 10, 1999
Even back in his high school days, Moran Norris was never the featured running back. Given his proficiency as a lead blocker — and his propensity to fumble — he never thought he’d become one at Kansas.

October 10, 1999
Are they going to return to showing the scores of other games during the KU football games? With the new scoreboard they don’t show any scores and they haven’t even announced any. Technical problems associated with a scoreboard power outage during the Kansas-San Diego State game last Saturday prevented scores from being displayed or announced, said Doug Vance, assistant athletics director for media relations. Vance said scores will be posted on the scoreboard and announced over the P.A. system during this Saturday’s SMU-Kansas game.

GARDEN CALENDAR
October 10, 1999

MOTLEY FOOL
October 10, 1999
Q: What’s an order imbalance? — C.R., Ypsilanti, Mich. A: Order imbalances happen on stock exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) when there are too many buy orders and not enough sell orders — or vice versa. When they occur, the exchange might halt trading temporarily, to allow more of the other kind of order to come in. This permits better matching of buyers and sellers, and makes prices less volatile.

FRIENDSHIP SWEETENED WITH AGE
October 10, 1999
Stan Andersen is one of those two friends of ancient times I want to write about, even though none of you in Lawrence know him. He and I go way back. Fifty-nine years ago we were together in a class at Utah State called College Grammar, an absolutely wonderful class that taught sentence diagramming. The professor, who I believe had coached Stan in debate, called on Stan a lot, and he got not only bright but witty replies. Stan came from a little town called Elwood, the same town where my wife was born. Elwood was in Bear River Valley, across the mountain from our college town. He was a farm boy, and when he learned I also came from a town along the Bear River we established contact. We worked on our school paper, and began to do things together, having special fun writing silly little plays. We joined the same fraternity that spring.

OLD HOME TOWN 100 YEARS AGO
October 10, 1999
IN 1899 On Oct. 10, 1899, the Lawrence Journal had an item from the Atchison Globe: “Great roar from Ed Howe [the Globe’s editor]. The Kansas University Glee club will again make a tour of the state after giving the people a year’s rest. What makes the University faculty imagine that anyone wants to hear the Glee club, and why are the students not at work attending school? They can’t sing; they give a dreary performance, and their parents are paying for their tuition at the University, which time they are spending in gadding.”
TURNS UP THE VOLTAGE
October 10, 1999
If you’re looking for family entertainment with lively music, ongoing choreography, great sets and multiple costume changes, you don’t have to go any farther than the Kansas University campus. “Schoolhouse Rock Live!,” a collaborative effort of KU Theatre for Young People and the Seem-To-Be Players, will have you clapping, singing along and perhaps even dancing on-stage before the curtain falls.
HASKELL WINS HOMECOMING GAME
October 10, 1999
Haskell Indian Nations University scored a touchdown on its final drive to defeat Peru State’s JV, 24-23, in the Fightin’ Indians’ homecoming game at Haskell Stadium. “It was just a matter of everyone buckling down and we didn’t make mistakes when it counted,” Haskell coach Gary Tanner said. “Our quarterback really stepped it up.”
DOWN
October 10, 1999
Folks who live in Manhattan eventually become accustomed to the sound of artillery resounding from the Flint Hills west of town. That’s the price you pay for having a military base nearby. Would that Kansas University’s football team possesed even a smidgen of the weaponry booming on the vast acreage of Fort Riley. Maybe a howitzer. Or a tank. Or even a bazooka. Maybe a carbine?
25 YEARS AGO
October 10, 1999
Local daytime highs had been running in the 60s with nighttime lows around 50. More showers were hoped for, however, to ease the long dry spell. Recent rains had helped but had been insufficient to really break the drought. Mike Wildgen, the assistant city manager at Olathe, was hired for a corresponding job in Lawrence. Wildgen’s starting salary was to be $17,500 a year. He was a Kansas University graduate in geography-anthropology and had a earned master’s degree in public administration.
KU-KSU HOW THEY SCORED
October 10, 1999
First Quarter 12:15 — Quincy Morgan 88 pass from Jonathan Beasley. After teams traded punts on first possessions, KSU took over on own 12. After throwing incomplete on first down, Beasley scrambled away from safety blitz, had plenty of time and found Morgan as KU corner Quincy Roe fell down. Morgan scored untouched. Jamie Rheem kick. (Kansas State 7, Kansas 0).
LATE NIGHT
October 10, 1999
Like Dr. Frankenstein, Lefty Driesell is credited with creating a monster — a monster called Midnight Madness. Twenty nine years ago — at midnight on Oct. 15, 1970 — Driesell opened the University of Maryland men’s basketball practice at the earliest time teams could work out in accordance with NCAA rules.

CHARLIE HOAG HOPES FOR PLAYING TIME
October 10, 1999
They also serve who stand and wait, and Charlie Hoag plans to serve until he runs out of NCAA eligibility. Hoag is a classic college football walk-on. He’s undersized, yet undeterred. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound wide receiver, now a third-year sophomore, mostly stands and waits on a cloud of optimism.
KANSAS-KSU NOTEBOOK
October 10, 1999
* John Lewis of Murphy, Texas, was the referee in charge of the seven-man Big 12 Conference-assigned officiating crew that threw 26 flags. ” * Kansas State was flagged 11 times in the first half for a whopping 101 yards while the Jayhawks were penalized just 25 yards on four flags. KSU finished with 18 penalties for 162 yards, both school records. The previous high in yardage was 135 against Baker way back in 1950. The 162 yards were also the most ever by a KU foe. “

BAKER FOOTBALL
October 10, 1999
Baldwin — Mastering the art of fourth-quarter magic is an elusive practice. After appearing to patent Houdini-esque escapes in two of its last three games, Baker University’s football team finally ran out of clutch plays Saturday at Liston Stadium and thus found itself on the other end of a last-gasp comeback.
CAMPAIGN LIMITS CURB FREE SPEECH
October 10, 1999
The Senate this week revisits campaign finance reform, making another attempt to broaden regulation, by the political class, of public communication about that class. So consider remarks Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif., made during debate on the House version of speech regulation, the Shays-Meehan bill. Her husband, a congressman, died in October 1997. In January 1998 she finished first in an all-party primary, and in March she won a runoff to complete the remainder of her husband’s term. Then came the June primary for the November election. In November 1998 she won a full term.

Henry Montoya of Denver shows up regularly every two years at his precinct polling place, signs the register, goes behind the curtain — and pushes the exit button, leaving not a mark on the voting machine. It is his way of protesting a political system that persistently, he says, offers “no one worth my vote.” Montoya is one of many fascinating characters who inhabit a new paperback, “Nonvoters: America’s No Shows,” by two professors at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Jack C. Doppelt and Ellen Shearer (Sage Publications).

Frogpond has been on tour since July and all that playing has paid off handsomely. The band members never sounded tighter, harder or more confident, putting in a lean, ferocious performance. They certainly came ready to rock.
